Decembers are usually an exciting time.

Riding high on his stellar performance in Vishal Bharadwaj's Haider. Shahid Kapoor, who is expected to sweep almost all awards this year, was chosen as the Celebrity of the Year by the fans! In a contest between big wigs of Bollywood, it was surprising how Shahid won with landslide 35% of votes, leaving the rest in his wake. Mary Kom star Priyanka Chopra, who has been making news for signing an American Tv series with ABC, finished second in the poll with 25% of the votes. Aamir Khan finished third in the race with 19% of votes as he soared to limelight with his performance in controversy hit PK.
Deepika and Alia earned fourth and fifth spot with 11% and 6% of votes respectively. Deepika's beau, Ranveer Singh, who grabbed eyeballs with his quirky antics in condom ads and Bang Bang dare made got 3% of votes, while Ragini MMS 2 hottie Sunny Leone finished last with 2% of votes.
